Review of 2009: August
August was my blissful Italian sojourn. It left time for only four movies. My Chinese had Cédric Villain at his mischievous best, witty and charming in his analysis of stereotypes. Malcolm Sutherland is a busy animator whose work is varied in its styles. The Astronomer's Dream explains how astronomers think, a whimsical world beautifully created. Push, Osamu Tezuka’s satire is also funny but with a cutting edge that has a lesson for all of us in a changing planet of consumerism. Kenny Frankland’s Lion’s Den was all action from Ms Dynamite’s vocals to the heroes on screen.
